My e-mail is I would very much like to see what they wrote in their wills.

My Holmes family still lives in Wurtsboro, N. Y. and I can trace them back to Newburgh in the late 1780's. My problem is that I have not found the father of John Holmes who married Charlotte Jane Jackson. They are my ggg-grandparents. I have all from them to present, but so far not his parents.

I know of the entire family of Burroughs Holmes, Elizabeth's father, back to 1580's
and many of the branches. I just haven't found the Newburgh connection to John yet. But I will!

I have John's family bible but unfortunately nothing about his ancestors, only descendants.

Thank you for whatever you have and if I can be of any help please let me know.

Randy Holmes
